DhRyh3yX4AASEKZBoethius is beginning to find his feet at the age of five and, having recorded two wins in points this spring, he made his second rules start of the summer a winning one at Worcester under Richard Johnson.

He seemed much more at home on a flat, galloping track yesterday, having been a little disappointing around Fontwell last time, and having travelled well throughout, he kept finding once coming under pressure and, under a strong ride from the three-time champion jockey, he stayed on well to hold off two persistent challengers in the run to the line.

He shouldn’t go up too much for that win and, a young horse gaining in confidence, he looks capable of adding further successes in the weeks ahead.
